Manatee County Animal Ordinance 12-10, Sec. 2-4-11, paragraph (d) states: "The owner or custodian of a dog or cat must have direct control of such animal at all times." This means that dogs MUST be on a leash. Please make sure your dog is not running loose. Click here to see the entire Manatee County Animal Ordinance. Take them to the Paw Patch Dog Park to run loose (see above).
REMINDER: Residents and contractors (lawn people, etc.) MUST NOT pour toxic or other chemicals in the gutters, down the sewers in the street, or into the lake from their back yards. It can pollute our lakes and sicken or kill the wildlife in them. Grass clippings in the lake cause the algae and scum to thrive.
